My name is Bob. And I am an addict. And damn proud of it. I am addicted to cheese. That makes me, what, a cheeseaholic? A University of Michigan study claims pizza is the most addictive food and it’s because of the cheese, God’s gift to taste buds. According to a story in the Los […]
I came across a poll done by something called Playbuzz that ranked the NFL’s most annoying fans. Not surprisingly, the Seattle Seahawks and their silly 12th Man thing ranked No.1 for most annoying, followed by Patriots fans, then Cowboys fans. Packer fans came in at a respectable No. 7. I’ve always found Eagles fans to […]
For a class assignment, my 9-year-old son Shane had to write a story about someone. He said, “I want to write about grampa. Was he in a war?” Shane never met his grampa. Either grampa. Both my dad and Mary’s died years before Shane was born. I told Shane his grampa, my father, was in […]
If I’m Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, I’m worried about cornerback Terence Newman. After Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, after rookie wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 129 in his first start, Newman told Star Tribune columnist and BS Show contributor Jim Souhan that Diggs is a “potential Hall of Famer, down […]
I am suffering from eaters’ remorse. I gorged myself on cheese pizza and vanilla ice cream — the greatest food and dessert, respectively, in the history of mankind. Womankind, too. And now I have what my grandmother and everybody on “The Sopranos” called agida. (That’s I-tie for heartburn.) I need a good agida-reducing rutto or […]
Pet peeve No. 309: People who don’t have a clue how to merge into highway traffic. Like the imbecile who came barreling down the entrance ramp to 35W expecting me to get out of his way. Even though I was pulling a horse trailer. Even though there was a car in the left lane and […]
I am depressed. I checked the weather on my phone. It said at 6 a.m. Saturday morning the temperature would be 30 degrees. It has begun. Winter. Blech.
Duke Pieper is one of the most impressive and inspirational people I’ve met. A standout hockey player, Pieper suffered a brain bleed before his first varsity game as a freshman. It was bad, so bad doctors told Duke’s family there was a five percent chance he would survive surgery for the brain lesion that caused […]
I received an e-mail from WalMart and it was exciting. I am one of five people they’re giving half a million dollars as part of their 53rd anniversary celebration. Woo-hoo! I don’t even remember signing up for any promotion. But it said in the e-mail the money is mine so I’m not arguing. They gave […]
I met Bob Gillum about 20 years ago when his kids were among the best athletes at Orono High School and our foster daughter Cassandra was a cheerleader there. Bob was involved in the booster club, or whatever they called at the time. He always was nice and outgoing and always made me feel welcome. […]
